“Fantastic Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

The location is just walking distance from the city center and close to a lot of local restaurants and shops. Other popular places are also within a few minutes of reach by taxi. The staffs there were really friendly and handled my complaints well. The hotel was consistently very clean. Probably the newest hotel in Chinatown and price was also rather competitive. Will definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend it to other tourists!

Room Tip: Superior rooms have bigger space and penthouse room, which I wish I stayed at, has a really good vie...

I visited Burma with my mother, who was a previous citizen, this past year, and we stayed at this hotel for the majority of our 2.5 weeks vacation (aside from our 3 day trip to Bagan). The location is great, as it's in the middle of shopping centers, local foods, etc. It is about 15 min. walking distance of Bogyoke Ze (market) and many other places.

The hotel is very clean, from the rooms to the bathrooms to the hallways and dining area on the top floor. I actually never imagined having that great a sleep during my first time overseas, but the beds were very clean and very comfy!

I definitely recommend breakfast upstairs. Their mo-hing-ngar (or catfish noodle soup) is almost as good as my mom's homemade, and is offered daily. Word of advice to the sanitation/bug wary traveler: don't be surprised if you see a few small ants here and there in your food in any Burmese restaurant. This isn't America or any other first world country!

The staff is great. They were extremely polite, respectful, friendly, and helpful. When we first arrived, we asked to change our room farther away from the smoking rooms and they obliged. When I got food poisoning, the boys there tried to help my mom find some generic Tylenol for me.

Given that this is one of the newer hotels, they have A/C, wi-fi (which was kind of spotty), and flat screen TVs (channels are very limited). Although it's a little bit on the pricier side but not by much, overall, I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have spottier wi-fi, and try to ask to be placed farther away from a smoking room if po...

Dear cmwww,

Thanks for your feedback on Tripadvisor and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay!

Indeed, the location lends itself to a variety of locations, whether it be for sightseeing, eating, shopping or other purposes. We highly prioritize the cleanliness of our hotel and constantly ensure that our rooms and public spaces look clean and well-polished. Great to hear that you liked our breakfast and our special Mohingar! Also, I highly appreciate you found our staffs friendly and always willing to help. Our staffs are always told to resolve customer complaints/issues/suggestions to the best of their abilities and hope the medicine worked out well!

Regarding the bug issue, we have resolved it by fixing our water channels and using insect spray constantly. We have also renovated our high-speed Internet infrastructure and we hope that the next time you visit Yangon, you don't find our Internet as spotty as it was the last time.

We very much look forward to your visit again and sincerely hope that you choose to stay at Hotel Grand United the next time you are in Yangon!
